Axe used to fell young trees, to remove branches from a felled tree, to prune, to chop firewood on the log, etc.

There are all kinds of shapes, sometimes even a miner's axe or a heavy carpenter's axe is used. However, it is usually an axe of about 0.7-1.3 kg, with an eye and two bevels. The stem is about 30 cm long. The axes for chopping firewood (see splitting axe) are very similar to some woodcutter's axes but are lighter.

These axes can be distinguished from the fireman's axe, the felling axe and the topping axe. [MOT]
